Jesus, speaking to the thief on the cross, said, “To day shalt thou be with me in paradise” (Luke ). Peter clearly taught that Christ went to preach the gospel in the spirit world (see 1 Peter –20; ). But these ancient prophets don’t give us any description of what the spirit world is like or where it is.

      The restored gospel of Jesus Christ teaches that after death, the spirit of every man and woman goes to a place known as the spirit world. Doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that the soul of man is immortal and existed prior to this earth life in what Latter-day Saints call the premortal life.

Times that seem to be growing darker and darker at an accelerated rate. The Church in the Power of the Spirit is one of the great ecclesiological works of history. I would dare to call it a classic work in the history of theology.

Though this work is the church eclipsed by Theology of Hope and The Crucified God in Moltmann's corpus, it deserves its own attention in understanding Moltmann and missional theology/5.

Many people have wondered what the spirit world is like. The death and resurrection of Christ brought the Holy Spirit, the indweller of the church and its members.

The Church had to first be cleansed by the blood of God before it could be filled with the power of God It was before the ascension of Jesus and before Pentecost that.

Questions: 1. To deny the existence of God and the spirit world is to be as blind as those who at one time vigorously asserted that the earth is flat or that the earth is the center of the solar system.
